Ukraine army using Taiwan-made DronesVision Revolver 860 combat drones


Ukraine - Russia conflict war 2022


POSTED ON FRIDAY, 19 AUGUST 2022 10:37





According to Taiwan News referring to Oryx, Taiwan-made DronesVision Revolver 860 combat drones are being used by Ukrainian forces against the Russian invasion forces.

On August 17, Oryx reported that Revolver 860 combat VTOL UAVs had been sold to Poland and subsequently transferred to Ukraine. Last June, CM Media cited a social media post by a military enthusiast showing that the Revolver 860 was being used by the Ukrainian military to drop mortar shells on Russian troops.

The Revolver 860 is a VTOL combat drone designed with four arms and eight rotors. Its weapons bay (a barillet, hence its name of ''revolver'') can carry up to eight 60mm mortar shells. Customization for other calibers (81 or 120mm) can be discussed. The drone can stay airborne for 20 to 40 minutes, depending on weight and wind conditions. The drone can be operated within a 20km range. Its maximum takeoff weight is 42kg.

When asked on Thursday (Aug. 18) to comment on claims that 800 of its Revolver 860 UAVs had been sent to the Ukrainian army, a representative for DronesVision told Taiwan News that the company only ships to customers in Poland, and it cannot comment on where those firms may later send the drones as it has signed non-discloser agreements with its clients. The representative said that purchases of the drones picked up in Poland in March, shortly after Russia invaded Ukraine, and have steadily increased since.

Ukraine develops locale-made artillery system using MTLB tracked armored with MT-12 100mm anti-tank gun


Ukraine - Russia conflict war 2022


POSTED ON SATURDAY, 20 AUGUST 2022 17:03






The Ukrainian army has published a video on Social Network showing the new development of a mobile artillery system based on a Soviet-made MT-LB multirole tracked armored vehicle fitted with an MT-12 100mm anti-tank towed gun.

The Ukrainian armed forces develop locale-made weapon systems to deal with the lack of military equipment and more specifically mobile artillery systems.
On June 29, 2022, the Army Recognition editorial team reported that Ukraine has already developed indigenous rocket launcher systems using 122mm rocket launcher tubes mounted on a Unimog light truck and an S-8 rocket launcher pod from a Ka-52 helicopter mounted on a Mitsubishi pickup used to fight Russian troops.
The MT-LB is a multipurpose tracked armored vehicle that was designed at the Kharkov Tractor Plant in Ukraine under the direction of Anatoliy Belousov in the early 1960s. It was one the most popular multirole tracked armored vehicle used in the world. It was also developed in many variants to perform a wide range of missions.

The design of the MTLB is based on a low-profile armored hull mounted on a tracked armored chassis. The hull of the MT-LB is all-welded steel armor with the crew compartment at the front, the engine immediately behind the crew compartment on the left side and the troop compartment at the rear of the hull.

For its self-protection, the vehicle is equipped with a one-man turret mounted at the front right side of the hull which is armed with one 7.62 mm PKT machine gun.

The MTLB is powered by a V-8 cylinder diesel engine developing 240 hp at 2,100 rpm coupled to a manual transmission with 6 forward and 1 reverse gears. It can run at a maximum road speed 61 km/h with a maximum cruising range of 500 km. The vehicle is fully amphibious being propelled in the water by its tracks at a maximum speed of 4,5 km/h.

The MT-12 is a 100mm anti-tank that was developed in Russia and entered into service with the Russian armed forces in 1961. The gun is operated by a six-man crew consisting of a detachment commander, driver of the towing vehicle, gun layer on the left, loader on the right, and two ammunition numbers.

The MT-12 is able to fire three types of ammunition including the APFSDS (Armor-Piercing Fin-Stabilized Discarding Sabot) with a range of 3,000 m, HEAT (High-Explosive Anti-Tank) with a range of 6,000 m, and HE (High Explosive) with a range of 8,200 m.

Germany clears sale of 155m Vulcano precision-guided artillery shells, COBRA radars and IRIS-T missiles to Ukraine


Defense News August 2022 Global Security army industry


POSTED ON MONDAY, 22 AUGUST 2022 16:27






According to Anwesha Majumdar in RepublicWorld.com, the Chancellor of Germany, Olaf Scholz, on Sunday, August 21, announced the shipment of COBRA counter-battery radar and IRIS-T missiles to Ukraine.

naval guns and 155mm land artillery systems. (Picture source: Leonardo)




German newspaper Die Welt's website on May 4, 2022, already announced that Germany planned to supply Cobra counter-artillery radars to Ukraine. This announcement came after the announcement of Germany to provide PzH 2000 155mm self-propelled howitzers to Ukraine.

Germany has now authorized the sale of 255 high-precision 155mm Vulcan-guided artillery shells to Ukraine. According to the German publication Welt am Sonntag, no precise delivery date has been set yet. Defense companies of Germany (Diehl Defence) and Italy (Leonardo) have jointly produced Vulcano shells.

In addition to this, the Chancellor of Germany, Olaf Scholz on Sunday announced the shipment of the COBRA counterbattery radar and the IRIS-T air defence system to Ukraine. Referring to the weapons, Scholz said that they "will soon be" in Kyiv. According to Nexta, he also said that Germany will keep giving Ukraine "what it needs for defense."

Vulcano 155mm artillery shells

Vulcano 155mm is a family of subcalibre ammunition for 155mm Land artillery systems composed by an unguided projectile called BER (Ballistic Extended Range) and a guided one called GLR (Guided Long Range). They represent the most advanced technology currently available for precise land artillery firings.

The Vulcano projectile is specifically conceived and realized to improve the performance of other ammunition of the same calibre, both in range and accuracy while maintaining compatibility with the in-service propelling charges and 155mm barrels. The outline of the ammunition is almost identical to that of conventional rounds, which enables it to be handled without any additional logistical burden.

The main application of the Vulcano 155 GLR is for long-range, high-accuracy fire support against stationary and moving point targets with an extremely reduced likelihood of collateral damage.

The outstanding aerodynamics, coupled with the GPS guidance and trajectory shaping capabilities, enable the Vulcano 155 GLR to reach a max range of 70km while keeping an extreme accuracy of fewer than 5m within all operational ranges.

The shell is filled with IM explosive and it is made up of specific patented pre-formed tungsten rings, enabling extremely high effectiveness against soft and lightly protected targets; the detonation trigger is generated by a Radio Frequency programmable fuse capable of various functionalities, such as altimetric, instantaneous and delayed impact. When the RF fuse is replaced with the dedicated Semi-Active Laser (SAL) sensor, the ammunition can also effectively engage laser-designated targets (forward observer required), stationary and moving, with further improved precision with respect to pure GPS guidance.

Moreover, the possibility of programming the final attack angle of the projectile to up to 90° (that is, vertical fall) against the target enables the maximization of both warhead effectiveness and guidance accuracy, as well as minimizing the likelihood of detection of the projectile in flight by the enemy’s defence systems.

The Vulcano 155 ammunition, both BER and GLR, have been qualified according to the relevant STANAGs under joint Italian and German MoD supervision.

COBRA
The COBRA, which stands for COunter Battery RAdar, was jointly developed by Thales, Airbus Defence and Space and Lockheed Martin for the German, French and British armed forces. The radar entered into service in 2005.

The COBRA is considered the world's most advanced land-based weapon locating system, comprising a high-performance radar, advanced processing, and integrated, flexible command, control, and communication system. The design includes state-of-the-art digital processing and advanced active, solid-state phased array antenna comprising several thousand transmit/receive modules.

The COBRA mission is to locate mortars, rocket launchers and artillery batteries and to provide information for countering their effectiveness. With a detection range up to 100 km, COBRA is capable of locating and classifying up to 40 batteries in two minutes. It will also be able to monitor breaches of cease-fire when deployed in a peace-keeping role.

IRIS-T

The IRIS-T ("InfraRed Imaging System Tail/Thrust Vector-Controlled") is a German-led program to develop a short to medium-range infrared homing air-to-air missile to replace the AIM-9 Sidewinder found in some NATO member countries. Any aircraft capable of firing the Sidewinder is also capable of launching the IRIS-T

EUTM Ukraine? L'UE envisage une mission de formation de l'armée ukrainienne


Ukrainian Armed Forces / Zbroyni Syly Ukrayiny - Page 24 2087213569


Une "European Union Training Mission "(EUTM, comme on en connaît au Mali, en Somalie, en RCA et au Mozambique) bientôt en Ukraine?
L'idée d'une telle mission de formation de l'Union européenne a été émise hier par Josep Borrell, le Haut représentant de l'UE pour la politique étrangère, lors d'une conférence de presse à Santander, dans le nord de l'Espagne (photo ci-dessus Reuters). Il a précisé que cette proposition serait débattue la semaine prochaine à Prague lors du Conseil des ministres de la Défense des pays membres de l'UE.

Cette "importante" mission se déroulerait dans des pays voisins de l'Ukraine. 

Josep Borrell a toutefois refusé de fournir plus de détails, notamment sur les effectifs d'une telle mission, affirmant ne pas pouvoir "anticiper les détails d'un accord qui doit être forgé par tous les Etats membres".

Une telle mission s'ajouterait à l'effort britannique pour former des soldats ukrainiens (photo UK MoD). Le 11 août, Londres a annoncé avoir déjà formé 2300 soldats ukrainiens, dans le cadre d'un programme lancé en juin. L'initiative britannique va être soutenue par le Canada, le Danemark, la Finlande, la Suède, la Norvège, l'Allemagne, la Lettonie et les Pays-Bas.

Une nouvelle aide militaire américaine de trois milliards de $ à l'Ukraine (actualisé)

Le président Biden a annoncé ce mercredi une nouvelle livraison d'armement à l'Ukraine pour un montant total d'environ 2,98 milliards de dollars. Cette aide militaire s'inscrit dans le cadre de l'Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative ; c'est la plus importante débloquée par les Etats-Unis en faveur de l'Ukraine depuis le début de l'invasion de ce pays par la Russie le 24 février dernier.
19 "paquets" d'aide ont déjà été attribués. Le dernier d'une valeur de 775 millions de dollars l'a été le 19 août.
Depuis l'arrivée au pouvoir de l'administration Biden, la valeur de l'aide militaire US à Kiev dépasse les 15,5 milliards de $.

Selon le général Pat Ryder, le "package" comprend entre autres:
6 batteries anti-aériennes NASAM (National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System) qui s'ajoutent aux deux autres annoncées début juillet


245 000 obus de 155 mm
65 000 obus pour mortier de 120mm 
24 radars de contre-batterie 
des drones RQ-20 Puma
des équipements de soutien pour les drones ScanEagle
des batteries de roquettes pour la lutte anti-drones de type VAMPIRE 
Une partie des fonds est destinée à la formation et au soutien
Pour sa part, le Premier ministre britannique, Boris Johnson, a promis mercredi une nouvelle aide militaire à l'Ukraine face à la Russie à l'occasion d'une visite à Kyiv, où il s'est entretenu avec le président ukrainien Volodimir Zelensky.

Cette enveloppe de 54 millions de livres (64 millions d'euros) comprendra 2 000 drones (dont 850 Black Hornet) et des "munitions rôdeuses".

Australia to offer 300 DefendTex D40 kamikaze drones to Ukrainian army


Defense News August 2022 Global Security army industry


POSTED ON THURSDAY, 25 AUGUST 2022 17:01





According to Maksim Panasovskyi in gagadget.com, the Ukrainian Armed Forces will soon receive a new type of kamikaze drone (the DefendTex 40) from Australia, in addition to Warmate, Switchblade 300 and Phoenix Ghost.

Australia will soon hand over 300 DefendTex D40 kamikaze drones to Ukraine, Maksim Panasovskyi writes. Test units have already been delivered to Poland, where they will be tested. After the tests, Australia will send the entire batch of drones to Ukraine.

As Joseph Trevithick wrote in The Drive, the Drone40, which DefendTex unveiled publicly in 2019, was among various new systems that British Army troops from the Light Dragoons and Royal Anglian Regiment were seen training with during a Mission Rehearsal Exercise (MRX) in October 2020. The Drone40 can be fired from launchers designed to fire standard 40mm low-velocity grenades. Its overall length is variable depending on the type of payload installed, but DefendTex says the length of the core body is close to five inches. As such, a launcher designed to fire over-sized 40mm cartridges, such as variants of the Heckler & Koch AG36 under-barrel grenade launcher, which are in service with U.K. and U.S. forces, among others, is necessary to employ them. Some older launchers, most notably the very popular American-made M203, can only accommodate relatively short 40mm rounds.

Combined with a camera-equipped type, the Drone40s could act as loitering munitions, hovering over a certain area, waiting for targets to emerge, and then being directed to engage them when they do. The feed from Drone40s equipped with the cameras is transmitted back to the operator via a line-of-sight link and is on a hand-held tablet-like device. This is also how the drone's movements are controlled after launch, via a GPS-enabled navigation system.

United Kingdom gives six underwater drones to Ukraine to hunt mines

Naval News August 2022 Navy Forces Maritime Defense Industry

POSTED ON MONDAY, 29 AUGUST 2022 16:45


 
According to information published by the UK MoD on August 29, 2022, dozens of Ukrainian personnel are being trained by the Royal Navy to use hi-tech crewless vehicles to help them hunt mines.


Ukrainian Armed Forces / Zbroyni Syly Ukrayiny - Page 24 2d14

Side-by-side with sailors from the US Navy, experts from the Diving & Threat Exploitation Group are teaching Ukrainians how to operate the devices, which search large areas of seabed for mines and unexploded ordnance without putting the operators in harm’s way.

The UK is giving six of the underwater drones to Ukraine and training its personnel here in Britain to use them so they can clear their coastline of mines when they return to their homeland.

The lightweight autonomous vehicle is designed for use in shallow coastal environments, operating effectively at depths of up to 100 meters to detect, locate and identify mines using an array of sensors, so the Ukrainian Navy can destroy them.

Dozens of Ukrainian Navy personnel will be taught to use the drones over the coming months, with the first tranche having already begun their training. The Diving & Threat Exploitation Group is delivering three-week training courses, alongside the US Navy Sixth Fleet.

The Royal Navy has considerable experience using small tube-shaped sonar-equipped devices. The training involves launching and recovering the devices at sea, as well as interpretation of the data sent back to identify mock mines.

The Royal Navy is also training Ukrainian sailors to operate Sandown-class minehunters.

A small number of ships carrying grain have left Ukraine since the UN brokered a deal in July to allow food exports, but efforts to get food out of the country continue to be hampered by sea mines left by Russian forces along Ukraine’s coast.

About the Sandown class

The Sandown class is a class of fifteen minehunters built primarily for the Royal Navy by Vosper Thornycroft. The first vessel was commissioned into Royal Navy service on 9 June 1989 and all the British ships are named after coastal towns and cities.

The Sandown Class is equipped with two underwater PAP 104 mk5 remote-controlled mine-disposal vehicles, supplied by Societe ECA. The vehicle is controlled via a 2,000 m fiber-optic cable.

A lighting system, low light level black and white camera and a color camera are fitted. The vehicle is also fitted with high-resolution sonar. The sensor data is transmitted back to the operations control centre on the ship.

The main payload is a 100 kg mine disposal charge which can be replaced by a manipulator. Wire cutters are used to release moored mines from the column of water above the sea bed. The mine disposal vehicles can be deployed to a depth of 300 m.

Des armes pour l'Ukraine: certaines livraisons vont prendre du (beaucoup de) temps  



Dans un post du 2 juillet j'écrivais que  les Etats-Unis allaient fournir à l'Ukraine deux systèmes de missiles sol-air de moyenne et longue portée, ce qui allait permettre aux forces ukrainiennes de mieux défendre leur espace aérien contre les raids russes d'attaque ou de renseignement. Il s'agissait de NASAMS (National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System), un système sol-air fabriqué par l'Américain Raytheon et le groupe norvégien Kongsberg.

Le 24 août, dans le cadre d'un nouveau package destiné à l'Ukraine, les USA ont annoncé la fourniture de autres six batteries anti-aériennes NASAM qui s'ajoutent aux deux annoncées début juillet.

Selon les avis d'attribution de marchés du 26 août, les deux premiers systèmes viennent d'être commandés:

Citation :
"Raytheon Co., Tewksbury, Massachusetts, was awarded a $182,295,333 firm-fixed-price contract for the procurement of National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile Systems. Bids were solicited via the internet with one received. Work will be performed in Tewksbury, Massachusetts, with an estimated completion date of Aug. 23, 2024. Fiscal 2022 Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative funds in the amount of $182,295,333 were obligated at the time of the award. U.S. Army Contracting Command, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, is the contracting activity (W31P4Q-22-C-0068)."


La livraison est attendue, selon cet avis, avant le 23 août 2024.

La commande, rapide, de ces deux systèmes NASAM illustre assez bien la réalité des livraisons US à l'Ukraine. Certes, piocher dans les stocks de munitions et les arsenaux s'avère une manoeuvre rapide à mettre en oeuvre, même si le processus de préparation des envois de matériel, l'acheminement des lots et la formation des soldats ukrainiens à l'utilisation de ces armes rallongent le temps de déploiement sur le théâtre d'opérations.

Il sera ainsi très aidé de livrer les 40 MRAP MaxxPro que les Etats-Unis ont récemment promis: il suffit de piocher dans les stocks dodus de l'US Army (photo ci-dessus US Army). Mais ces stocks baissent d'une part (les missiles et les munitions par exemple); et certains équipements ne sont même pas encore dans l'inventaire ou en très petites quantités d'autre part), comme le rappelait Mark F. Cancian, du CSIS américain.

L'enthousiasme suscité par les annonces de livraisons gigantesques doit donc être tempéré. Ainsi, les autorités américaines ont bien prévenu la semaine dernière que les livraisons dans le cadre du très récent package de près de 3 milliards de $ allaient s'inscrire dans le moyen/long terme et qu'il faudrait "des mois et même des années" avant d'effectuer toutes les livraisons.

Les Ukrainiens attendent toujours une bonne partie des drones Switchblade et Phoenix Ghost annoncés. D'ailleurs, aucun avis d'attribution de marché n'a encore été diffusé en ce qui concerne les Switchblade 600. Peut-être en septembre, dans le cadre d'un marché de développement, selon le Pentagone cité par Defense News.  

On attend aussi la concrétisation d'un achat de système de lutte contre les drones de type VAMPIRE (l'acronyme de Vehicle-Agnostic Modular Palletized ISR Rocket Equipment) fabriqué par L3Harris Technologies.

Ces retards ne font pas l'affaire des Ukrainiens mais aussi des équipementiers US qui dénoncent la bureaucratie militaire, la rigidité des procédures d'achat, les délais dans l'émission des appels d'offres du Pentagone, alors que les fonds sont désormais disponibles pour recompléter les stocks dans le cadre de l'Ukraine Replacement Transfer Fund.

US to deliver M119A3 105mm digitalized light towed guns to Ukraine

Defense News September 2022 Global Security army industry

POSTED ON SATURDAY, 03 SEPTEMBER 2022 15:41



According to a video published on the Twitter account of "Ukraine Weapons Tracker" on August 29, 2022, Ukraine's armed forces will receive from the United States, an undisclosed number of M119A3 105mm digitalized light towed guns.

The video published on the Twitter account of Ukraine Weapons Tracker shows Ukrainian soldiers training to operate American M119A3 105mm light towed guns.

According to a statement published by the United States Department of Defense on August 19, 2022, a new military aid for Ukraine was announced with the delivery of 16 105mm Howitzers and 36,000 105mm artillery rounds. The 105mm howitzer model had not been specified, but with this video, we can confirm that the Ukrainian army will receive the latest variant of the M119.

The M119 howitzer is the American designation for the British L119 light gun which is in service with the U.S. Army. In 1987 an agreement was reached to produce the L119 under license by the US as the M119, to replace the M102 howitzer. It entered service with the 7th Infantry Division, Fort Ord, California, in December 1989.

The M119A3 is the latest variant in the family of M119. The M119A3 features new software and hardware component upgrades, GPS for navigation, a digital gunner's display, and digital communication between each gun and the fire direction center to speed up the process of receiving firing data and firing shells. The towed gun is also upgraded with fixed recoil and Suspension Lock Out System (SLOS) to fire top charge at all angles.

The M119A3 is a 105mm light towed howitzer which has a weight of 2,130 kg and can be towed by HMMWV, 2.5 ton, and 5-ton trucks.

The M119A3 has a maximum firing range of 19.5 km with rocket-assisted munitions and 14 km using unassisted ammunition. It has a rate of fire of six rounds per minute.

Lithuania sends US 105mm howitzers to Ukraine

Defense News September 2022 Global Security army industry

POSTED ON THURSDAY, 08 SEPTEMBER 2022 15:50



According to Ukrinform, Lithuania has sent to Ukraine a batch of 105mm howitzers as part of the assistance package aimed to help the nation fight off the Russian invasion.

Ukrainian Armed Forces / Zbroyni Syly Ukrayiny - Page 24 2b24

The Ministry of Defense of Lithuania announced the news on Twitter, Ukrinform reports. “Lithuania continues material support to Ukrainian Armed Forces. Our 105 mm howitzers are on their way to Ukraine,” the tweet reads. The Lithuanian Ministry of Defense added that Ukraine needs a “non-stop weapon supply. We cannot make pauses,” reads the tweet.

However the howitzer model is not specified, the picture published by Ukrinform, if related to the Lithuanian delivery, shows a U.S.-made M101A1 (previously designated M2A1) model. It was the standard U.S. light field howitzer in World War II and saw action in both the European and Pacific theaters and during the Korean War. Entering production in 1941, it quickly gained a reputation for accuracy and a powerful punch. The M101A1 fires 105 mm high explosive (HE) semi-fixed ammunition and has a range of 12,330 yards (11,270 m), making it suitable for supporting infantry.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, at the end of August, Lithuanian Defense Minister Arvidas Anusauskas stated that Lithuania's military aid to Ukraine amounts to more than EUR 120 million, with the total amount of support soon to exceed half a billion euros.

Norway donates Hellfire missiles and night vision equipment to Ukraine

Defense News September 2022 Global Security army industry

POSTED ON THURSDAY, 08 SEPTEMBER 2022 14:17



The Norwegian government on September 8 announced it donates AGM-114 Hellfire anti-tank missiles to Ukraine. The donation includes approximately 160 missiles, launching pads and guidance units. Ukraine will also receive night-vision equipment drawn from Armed Forces inventories.

The donation was announced by Norwegian Minister of Defence Bjørn Arild Gram when he met Defence Ministers from 40 or so countries in Germany today. Western countries are in Ramstein to coordinate further donations and military support to Ukraine, to secure that the country can withstand the Russian invasion.

‘’The Hellfire missiles were originally acquired for the Coastal Ranger Commando. This is a weapon that Ukraine has asked for, and it will prove useful in their fight against Russian invasion forces. The missile is easy to operate, and can be used against both land- and sea targets’’, said Defence Minister Bjørn Arild Gram.

The Norwegian Armed Forces tested and verified the status of the missiles prior to their shipment. They have now been shipped from Norway. Ukrainian operators have been trained in the use of Hellfire by Norwegian instructors. The Hellfire system is nearing the end of its service life was scheduled to be phased out the Norwegian Armed Forces.

Norway has also donated night-vision equipment to Ukraine. This includes both night vision goggles and binoculars. This is equipment that has been replaced by newer equipment in the Norwegian Armed Forces.

In the future, donations will to a lesser extent come from the Armed Forces’ own inventory. ‘’So far, we and our allies have donated military systems and equipment from our own stocks. In the future we will need to cooperate closely with the defence industry in order to maintain necessary deliveries of military equipment to Ukraine. This will also ensure that Ukraine receives more modern and efficient equipment’’, said Minister of Defence Bjørn Arild Gram.

  Ukraine army uses former French Army TRF1 155mm howitzers

Defense News September 2022 Global Security army industry

POSTED ON FRIDAY, 09 SEPTEMBER 2022 17:17



As reported by Laurent Lagneau on opex360.com, the main activity of the French company S2M-Equipment, established in Montlouis-sur-Loire, is to restore, even modernize, equipment that has previously been used by the French forces in order to put them on the second-hand market. Its catalog offers VAB armored vehicles and ERC-90 Sagaie combat vehicles having found a second youth, as well as Peugeot P4s, ACMAT VLRAs and 155 mm TRF1 towed guns,

March 23, 2010 (Picture source: U.S. Army/Sgt. Alex C. Sauceda)



S2M Equipment should provide the Ukrainian army with former French Army TRF1 howitzers. This is indeed what Jean-Dominique Merchet, of the daily L'Opinion, revealed and tweeted. “These guns are no longer in service with the Army, except for a handful of them in a regiment stationed in Djibouti. Destocked, they were acquired by a broker – the company S2M-Equipment […]. It was from her that the Ukrainians bought the TRF1s, the Ministry of the Armed Forces having “accompanied their certification”, ”said Mr. Merchet.

Such a sale must first be authorized by the Interministerial Commission for the Study of War Material Exports [CIEEMG], Laurent Lagneau writes. And so it had no objection. As on July 1, 2021, the French army still had at least 12 TRF1s, the latter being used by the 5th Overseas Interarms Regiment [RIAOM] based in Djibouti.

The TRF1 was showcased in 1979 at the Eurosatory defense exhibition, as a replacement for the aging BF-50. Giat produced it from 1984 to 1993. The TRF1, it is a gun with a maximum range of 30 km. Able to be quickly put into action [less than five minutes] and requiring 8 gunners, it has a rate of fire of 3 shots in 15 seconds in rapid mode, or 6 shots in one minute in “classic” mode. Its tube must be changed every 3,000 shots.

A tweet posted on September 16 by the Lithuanian Minsitry of Defense states that Lithuania's military support to Ukraine continues. Ukrainian self-propelled howitzers with battlefield damages are on their way to Lithuania, where they will be repaired. At the same time, Lithuanian M113 armored personnel carriers continue their journey to the battlefield.


"Just today the Lithuanian government announced that we will send an additional batch of armored personnel carriers,” Lithuanian Minister of Defense Landsbergis announced at a press conference in Odesa on September 15. “Two batches. One of them should arrive in Ukraine very soon”. "On the other hand, we have tried to be an advocate, in many cases reminding our partners and allies in the EU and NATO that this is not enough," Landsbergis added.

Lithuanian Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis also said that the war unleashed by Moscow against Ukraine should end with the unconditional surrender of Russia.

According to a statement published by the Lithuania Ministry of Defense on July 21, 2022, Lithuania announced it would shortly deliver additional assistance to Ukraine including M113 tracked APCs (Armored Personnel Carrier) and M577 tracked armored command post vehicles.

The military assistance Lithuania has given to date includes the Stinger air defense systems, anti-armor weapons, body armor vests and helmets, 120 mm mortars, small arms, thermovisors, drones, anti-drone equipment, surveillance radars, M113 Armored Personnel Carriers (APCs), trucks, SUVs, the Bayraktar TB2 with ammunition that was crowdfunded for by the Lithuanian people.

The total of support Lithuania has provided to Ukraine so far amounts to approx. EUR 123 million.

 Ukrainian army recuperates abandonned Russian MTLB-mounted Borisoglebsk-2 jamming system

Ukraine - Russia conflict war 2022

POSTED ON FRIDAY, 16 SEPTEMBER 2022 11:02



Ukrainian Weapons Tracker tweeted on September 13 a picture of a Russian Borisoglebsk-2 jamming system mounted on an MT-LB captured in an apparently intact condition, which is a very valuable asset. No doubt this system will not be used by the Ukrainians but more or less discreetly recuperated by “relevant U.S. services”…

Tracker)



In service since 2014, the Borisoglebsk-2 is an MT-LB-mounted tactical SIGINT, direction-finding, and multifunctional jamming system that can monitor, geolocate, and jam the wider frequency spectrum. It can suppress mobile satellite communications as well as satellite-based navigation signals. The Borisoglebsk-2 merges four types of jamming stations into a single system with a single control console. Its prime contractor is Joint Stock Company Concern Sozvezdie, United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation (UIMC).

More in detail

The Borisoglebsk-2 is a multipurpose jamming complex designed for SIGINT and the suppression of HF/VHF/UHF frequencies of ground and airborne radio communication, satellite communication, and radio navigation systems and subscriber cellular and trunk communication lines operating in tactical C2 elements. It can track and jam both fixed-frequency and frequency-hopping signals.

The Borisoglebsk-2 system consists of a control post and four EW systems mounted on nine MT-LBuarmoured tracked vehicles. The composition of Borisoglebsk-2 is:
• R-330KMV Command-and-Control Station (Qty 1)
• R-325UMV Jamming Station (Qty 2) only one on URAL truck
• R-378BMV Jamming Station (Qty 2)
• R-330BMV Jamming Station (Qty 2)
• R-934BMV Jamming Station (Qty 2)

The features and capabilities of Borisoglebsk-2 are:
• Automatic distribution of frequencies to be jammed
• Automatic analysis and selection of emitters' signal parameters

Development

The Borisoglebsk-2 multi-functional jamming complex is the improved version of the legacy EW system “MANDAT”. It is developed by the Joint Stock Company Concern Sozvezdie, a subsidiary of the United Instruments Manufacturing Corporation. The developmental timeline of Borisoglebsk-2 is as follows:
2004: Development started.
2010: Evaluation testing completed in December.
2014: Entered service with the Russian Army.
2016: Borisoglebsk-2 upgrade started.

Citing information from the "Welt" newspaper website, Ukraine wants to order 18 RCH-155 155mm wheeled self-propelled howitzers for an amount of €216 million. On Friday, September 16, 2022, the Ukrainian ambassador in Germany, Andriy Melnyk said that Germany approved the export of these howitzers to Ukraine.

In terms of artillery systems, Germany has already delivered to Ukraine 10 155mm PzH 2000s tracked self-propelled howitzers that arrived in Ukraine in June and July 2022. Germany has also supplied Ukraine with three M270 MARS II MLRS (Multiple Launch Rocket Systems).

On September 16, 2022, the Army Recognition editorial team reported that Germany would supply two additional MARS II MLRS (Multiple Launch Rocket System) to Ukraine.

The RCH-155 is a new generation of mobile self-propelled howitzer designed and manufactured by the German company KMW (Krauss-Maffei Wegman). The howitzer is based on the wheeled chassis of the Boxer 8x8 multi-role armored vehicle.

The rear of the RCH-155 is fitted with a remotely operated turret armed with a 155mm 52-caliber gun which is also used on the tracked armored self-propelled howitzer PZH 2000. The vehicle can carry a total of 30 pieces of ammunition and is able to fire all standard 155mm NATO rounds.

It can fire up to 8 rounds per minute to a range of up to 40 km with standard ammunition that is achievable with BOXER RCH 155. An increased range of up to 56 km is possible with Very Long-range Artillery Projectiles (VLAP).
